PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) — It’s a new bar in Northern Liberties with a “speakeasy” feel. Bourbon and Branch has opened at 705 North Second Street (at 2nd and Fairmount).
Bar manager Righteous Jolly (yes, it’s his real name) describes the drinks, the food, and the decor:
“The theme is Old World, New World comfort food,” he tells What’s Cooking. “Artesian, delicious cocktails. Not a speakeasy, in that anyone can come, and it’s not a club, but the cocktails are certainly speakeasyesque in that they’re composed with fresh, organic, local ingredients. But we are called Bourbon and Branch; we are bourbon heavy, we are whiskey heavy.”
